Avoiding case stretching

I have tried several methods to prevent case stretching in resizing botlle neck cartridges; lubricating inside the neck, etc. I am now removing the depriming insert from the body of the resizing die and removing the primers with an old Lee "hit with a hammer" depriming tool. As a result, the case neck is resized smaller and is not enlarged by the withdrawal of the case from the die. I used a Lee case mouth expander to slightly bell the mouth of the case so it would accept the jacketed bullet, although needle nosed pliers would do just as well. This process seems to work fine, and I don't see any problem with it yet. I was wondering if any members do the same thing to avoid case stretching, or if any can see any difficulties doing this, other than a few extra steps in reloading.
